Sigma Premium Brush Kit

Sigma Premium Brush Kit.

So I know it’s been a while, but this week I started feeling better! Me and baby are both keeping well, but it feels like I’ve been pregnant for ages!

 If you remember me reviewing some brushes I mentioned I really wanted a set of sigma brushes. A couple of weeks ago I turned 21 and my sweet husband treated me to these babies. I was totally surprise as I knew he didn’t agree with the price for brushes (men never will understand!) I remember the first time I went to use them I didn’t want to get them dirty or stained! I washed them the following day, terrible I know…

These come in a book style case which will be perfect for traveling, I believe they use to come in a roll before. The brushes themselves are very handy and light to use. They have a funny smell to start with but after a wash they was fine. I was disappointed however it didn’t include a foundation brush. I think this is a great addition if you already have a few brushes in your kit. I’m planning on buying the Make me Classy set which I think will complete my kit.


This set includes the following brushes:

E10 - Small Eye Liner: Precise application of liner. Use with gel or liquid liners.
E15 - Flat Definer: Sharp and precise application. Press product along upper and lower lash lines to create an easy, thin liner. Works with gel, liquid or powder products.
E20 - Short Shader: Concentrated color application. Apply color onto small areas of the eye such as the outer eyelid. Also use to smudge the lower lash line.
E25 - Blending: Controlled blending. Blend colors together onto the lid with added control. Buff out harsh lines for a well blended effect.
E35 - Tapered Blending: Controlled application of crease color. Using just the tip of the brush to pick up color, apply directly onto the crease and sweep through. Effect is blended, but defined.
E45 - Small Tapered Blending: Precise color application onto the crease. Picking up color with just the tip of the brush, apply intense colors to the crease to add depth and dimension to the eye.
E50 - Large Fluff: Controlled highlighting. Apply highlighting shades onto the brow bone or upper cheekbone. Gives a soft and blended finish.
F10 - Powder/Blush: Precise placement of blush. Use for powder application.
F15 - Duo Fibre Powder/Blush: Soft blush application. Generates a diffused blush application. Works especially well with mineral product for a natural and delicate effect.
F20 - Large Powder: Controlled bronzer application. Bronzing of the cheekbones and temple area. Using the flat side gives definition and control.
F25 - Tapered Face: Exact product placement onto cheeks. Apply powder, blush or contour shades onto the cheeks and temples. Tapered shape gives exact placement of product.
F35 - Tapered Highlighter: Subtle highlighting. Apply highlighting shades onto the upper contours of the face. Diffused finish gives skin a natural glow.
F65 - Large Concealer: Conceal larger areas of the face or body. Works well with liquid or cream products.
F75 - Concealer: Precise product placement. Use around the lip area to conceal when wearing bold lip colors.
L05 - Lip: Precise application of color onto the lips. Use the firm edge to define and contour the lips.
I will carry on using these brushes a couple more weeks and then give you a better review on each brush and what I use them for.

Special Announcement

We’re having a baby
Due February 2015
This may explain why I haven’t been updating my blog and I honestly feel terrible for it. But since week 4 I was so sick I could just about get up in the morning to go to work and as soon I was home I would go to sleep! We are both super excited to become parents and all the changes we’re making to get there, so bare with me! Since finding out on the 11th June my health and my unborn baby have been my main priority.
My husband and I have been trying for a baby for a little while we went through some fertility problems but we managed to do it all naturally the moment we both gave up trying! I always knew I wanted a beginning of the year baby (January or February) so I guess someone up there knew my wishes! I started feeling sick around my husband’s birthday and thought it was a bug I had caught from our nephew this carried on for 4 days, I kept having dreams I was pregnant so one morning at 5am I decided to take a test!  The moment we found out we were expecting so many emotions came through, worried I wouldn’t make it to 12 weeks, scared, happy, everything. I will never forget the look on my husband’s face the moment I showed him the test.
As far as symptoms I have had every single one in the book, I haven’t had it easy at all. The morning sickness was the worst the first couple of weeks I couldn’t keep anything down. I then went off meat completely and was only eating potatoes or rice! At week 9 I had an emergency scan as I was having such bad cramps I was picturing the worse when me and my husband saw a VERY active bundle of joy. These went on to stop a couple of days later thank goodness! Now that I’m coming to an end in week 12 the sickness is slowly starting to go and being replaced with headaches and exhaustion!
 I can’t wait to start feeling like myself again..
How far along? 13 weeks
Total weight gain: 2 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Jeans and a Dress
Stretch marks? A few, I’ve been soaking myself in bio oil if you’re meant to get them you will.

Best moment this week: My birthday, baby gave me a day off from sickness.
Miss anything? Hmm, runny eggs!
Movement: Nothing yet.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Tuna!
Food cravings: Hmm, I’d say anything sweet but I have craved figs like crazy!
Gender: We both think we’re having a girl, but happy with a boy. Whatever comes will be more than welcome! Guess we will see at 20 week scan.

Symptoms: Vivid Dreams, Morning Sickness and Headaches.
Belly button in or out? In.
